Overview: Sony DSC-H50

The Sony DSC-H50 is the latest addition to Sony's high zoom digital camera line.


The Sony DSC-H50 has a 9.1 mega pixel resolution and a powerful Carl Zeiss optics capable of 15x optical zoom. It also has Sony's Super SteadyShot image stabilization to minimize handshake when using the camera at its highest zoom.

Like the previously announced Sony D-SLR a350, the Sony DSC-H50 also features a 3 inch tilting screen so you can still see the subject even at high or low angles.


According to Sony, the Sony DSC-H50 has an advanced sports shooting mode which means it is capable of shutters speeds of up to 1/4000 seconds plus the added predictive continuous auto-focusing even on burst modes means you can still take great pictures even when your subject is on the move.

Sony also claims that the Sony DSC-H50 also features a long-distance flash which can illuminate your subject even at 55 feet away, however you have to use IS0 3200 and the wide angle feature. Even though you can illuminate the subject that far, at that high of an ISO setting, I don't know if the picture would come out looking good though.

Though the Sony DSC-H50 is loaded with manual features that would fit any pro photographers, those just new to the photography scene would also love the automatic features on this camera. The Sony DSC-H50 also has Sony's newest face recognition technology which can differentiate between a child and adult and intelligent scene recognition. Other features includes: in-camera editing features, in-camera image management functions; slide show functions with
longer music playback; and HD component output.

Pricing and Availability

The Sony DSC-H50 will be available at the nearest SonyStyle store in may and has a price tag of $400.
